pet adoption, i love this story, which is coming up later in the half hour. what a shelter dog by the name of duke did to save a 9-week-old infant. this is going to be enough to make bianna finally adopt. we begin with the severe weather that will pound the nation's midsection later today. while parts of the northeast deal with yet another round of freeze warnings and some of the coldest temperatures so far this year. meteorologist ginger zee is here with the latest. good morning, ginger. >> good morning, bianna. everyone, i need you to know the most important part would be the severe weather. let me show you why. it happened yesterday in parts of new mexico. we'll begin in underwood, texas, where a tornado formed. there were two reported tornadoes in texas yesterday. in total, there were 20 severe weather reports. and many of them came from hail. let me share with you some of the impressive pictures. the hail went anywhere from about -- i'm going to get to that. there we go. one-inch to ping-pong-ball-sized hail. huge hail coming down. smashing windshields. this one from carlsbad, new mexico.
7:03 am
and the next pictures we'll be showing you come from a whole different area in new mexico. a lot of these cells had a ton of height to the storms. that usually adds to the hail potential. we're going to see that again today. and it's going to be for areas from texas, dallas included here, up through oklahoma city. even kansas city and parts of far western illinois, southwestern wisconsin. this whole region is in a slight risk for isolated tornadoes, that hail, and damaging winds. we'll be watching for that later this afternoon and evening. you'll want to catch your latest on the abc station near you. until then, i'll have the nation's weather and more on that deep freeze coming up. back to dan. >> thank you, ginger. ron asked an important question, have you ever played ping-pong with the ball the size of hail? >> think about it. >> nothing to say here. >> by the way, dan, the correct pronunciation for word dog here in new york is dog. we're here in new york. >> dog. >> dog. good morning, everyone.
7:04 am
we begin with the arrests that have been made in connection with the shooting of the courageous pakistani girl who stood up to the taliban. four people have been arrested for the attack on 14-year-old malala yusufzai. although, the suspected mastermind is still at large. pakistanis across the country prayed for her recovery friday. she is in stable condition after being shot in the head and neck. for speaking out for educating girls. and nearly two dozen people on a party boat in san francisco bay had a scare when the boat started sinking. the coast guard rescued 22 people on that craft after it struck a rock off of alcatraz and started taking on water. >> we were coming up on alcatraz. check it out. and all of a sudden, boom. like a big jolt. and the cost guard boats came in and got us off. >> nobody was injured in that incident. and the soft drink industry is launching a last-ditch effort to try to stop a ban on big drinks in new york city from taking effect. the industry is suing, claiming the city board of health,
7:05 am
don't have the authority to impose the ban on drinks larger than 16 ounces. the mayor calls the suit baseless. the rule is set to take effect this coming march. and if you get a strange-looking $100 bill, there's a good chance it was stolen. the fbi says a large amount of these newly-designed bills, they won't say how many, were stolen from a plane in philadelphia. the bills have a sophisticated design to prevent counterfeiting. but they don't go into circulation until next year. and finally, a crowning achievement for the florida girl who made state history to become the first girl to play quarterback in a football game. erin demilio was crowned homecoming queen. she accepted the honor during halftime. she was dressed in her uniform. the homecoming king was one of her teammates. she got a corsage and stuck it in her wristband. south plantation high won, 18-0. they are undefeated for the record. >> love her. thank you, ron. politics, now. and t-minus three days until the second presidential debate.
7:06 am
as the candidates get ready this morning, team obama is recruiting celebrity help. team romney is attacking what was supposed to be this president's greatest asset, foreign policy. it's "your voice, your vote." and abc's david kerley is in washington this morning. david, good morning, sir. >> reporter: good morning, dan. as of this morning, mitt romney has the mighty mo going into next week's debate. and these last couple of weeks before the election, as both candidates are battling for those critical, undecided voters. >> governor mitt romney. >> reporter: back on the trail for the candidates. >> didn't joe do great last night? >> reporter: after no knockout blow in the vice presidential debate. but the romney/ryan team all of a sudden sees an opening. not on the economy, which is improving. but rather, the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya, which resulted in the death of the ambassador and three other americans. >> he is doubling down on denial. when the vice president of the united states directly contradicts the testimony, sworn testimony of state department officials, american citizens
7:07 am
have a right to know just what's going on. >> reporter: romney was referring to the debate. one of the first questions from abc's martha raddatz. asking joe biden why there wasn't more security in benghazi, libya. >> we weren't told they wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security. >> reporter: who is the we in that statement? just the white house, says the president's spokesman. >> good morning, everyone. >> reporter: this story has such a big chance of spinning out of control, that secretary of state clinton, went before cameras to try and explain. >> to this day, we do not have a complete picture. >> reporter: the romney's team move, part of a search for undecided voters. team obama is doubling down on star power to sway that group. this morning, releasing an ad narrated by morgan freeman, showcasing what the campaign calls the president's conviction. later this week, former president bill clinton and bruce springsteen will stump in ohio for mr. obama. and on thursday, the president joins jon stewart on "the daily show." it will be his sixth appearance
7:08 am
and second since becoming president. but the performance that really matters is the one that comes next tuesday. the second presidential debate. mr. obama headed to williamsburg, virginia, today, for a couple of days of debate practice, with what aides are calling an adjustment to their strategy. and mitt romney is doing debate practice this weekend. it is tuesday, the big time we see them in the second debate. >> indeed. a lot of democrats, especially, say those adjustments are key. david kerley, thank you. for more on this, we have john avlon, senior columnist for "newsweek" and "the daily beast." john, good morning. >> good morning. >> thank you for coming in. we appreciate it. let's talk about benghazi. is this truly a potent issue for republicans? and does the killing of osama bin laden not inoculate the president somewhat on foreign policy attacks? >> the benghazi scrutiny is snowballing at the wrong time for the obama administration.
7:09 am
the questions that still exist, less than a month out from the election, that's a real problem. and in fact, it's been a month since the attack, we haven't brought those killers to justice. that's a real problem. but foreign policy has long been the president's strength in polls. in large part because of the killing of osama bin laden. the benghazi attack doesn't take that away. it doesn't take away winding down the wars that were so polarizing just four years ago. so, while it is a problem, i don't think it takes the issue off the table. and the third debate will be all about foreign policy. >> and the president said one of the problems the last debate, he was too nice. can we expect more of a fight on tuesday? and doesn't that carry risks of its own? >> there are risks with no more mr. nice guy. the president was being coached to not get in the gutter with mitt romney. to not get angry. but there's risks. look, the flipside of no drama obama is he can seem aloof. and he did in that first debate. i think what joe biden did in the debate this week is a sign of things to come. the president has to intensely engage, smile, and call out mitt romney where there's points of disagreement. but to do it in a way that keeps this crowd in the town hall format, on his side. >> and david kerley pointed out in his piece that obama -- that romney has really tried to tack
7:10 am
to the center after running to the right during the primaries. is that an opening for team obama? and have they exploited that sufficiently? >> no. look, the return of moderate mitt has everything to do with why he's been doing well in the polls. this is sort of a catch-22 for conservatives, right? mitt romney had to run as a severe conservative to get the nomination. now, he's trying to tack back to the center. and guess what? it works in the polls. centrist voters, swing voters, are looking for a candidate that is not representing the ideological extremes. it comes back to mitt romney as a flip-flopper. someone who is expedient when it comes to policy, whatever he needs to do to achieve a short-term political goal. that does create an opening. it hasn't been exploited by the obama campaign yet. this is what he said before. this is what he said now. which time was he telling the truth? >> we'll see tuesday night. >> in your opinion, who stands to benefit more from a town hall-style format? >> the president draws more energy off crowds. i think this will be a better arena for him, naturally.
7:11 am
noneconomic domestic issues, social issues, that puts mitt romney in a tricky spot reaching towards the center. >> john avlon, we appreciate it so much. abc news will have live coverage of the second presidential debate, tuesday night, starting at 9:00 eastern, with diane sawyer and george stephanopoulos. and tomorrow on "this week," you'll hear from rob portman and delaware attorney general beau biden, son of the vice president, joe biden. we're going to turn to "operation dotcom," the police sting that nabbed almost two dozen people allegedly selling drugs on craigslist, a website where just about everything imaginable is on sale. some of the suspects facing charges are not who you'd expect. abc's mark greenblatt is here with this story. and that is true. not who you would expect. >> reporter: good morning to you. one of those charged here is a former intern to a new jersey senator. and police say, those peddling drugs have grown so comfortable now, they've turned to openly advertising on craigslist. the booming business of dealing
7:12 am
drugs on craigslist took a hit this week, as police caught on to bold ads that promise xanax, adderall and even bundles of dope. >> oh, my god. that's so bad. >> reporter: the nypd announced 21 arrests in "operation dotcom." including a brooklyn dental assistant who denies allegations she illegally sold pills to undercover cops three times. and even a grad student at nyu pled not guilty to feeding the growing desire for stimulants on college campuses. you have friends who take adderall? >> yeah. >> reporter: if you wanted to, would you know where to get it? >> i think so. yeah, i would. >> reporter: it's that widespread? >> yeah. definitely. >> reporter: the arrests, just the latest in the growing trend that's taken drug dealing from the streets online. from los angeles, to philadelphia, to new york. abc news discovered similarly
7:13 am
bold advertisements for drugs, still active right now. offering great deals for study aids and drugs like adderall, for $8 a pill, or a simple trade. new york's police commissioner ray kelly is leading the national fight against the troubling trend. multiple people believe that they could get away with advertising, dealing drugs, on craigslist. what's your message to them? >> don't do it because obviously, the people we arrested in the last month or so, didn't get away with it. it is ultimately a losing proposition. >> reporter: but the craigslist drug trade is going strong, even as of this morning. a quick search in los angeles just turned up three dozen advertisements for adderall. dan, bianna, ironically, some of the advertisements openly asking law enforcement not to respond. >> adderall, taking off in so many segments of society. thank you for your reporting this morning, mark greenblatt. switching gears, now. in the city that practically perfected the high-speed chase
7:14 am
and invented the low-speed chase, by o.j. simpson, this morning, another slow-mo spectacle. the retired space shuttle "endeavour," being towed to its final resting place, a museum. it's drawing thousands of people into the streets, including abc's brandi hitt. brandi, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan. what a magnificent sight upclose. this is a piece of history, now making its way through the streets of los angeles. you can see the back end of the shuttle over my shoulder. what's really interesting is the large southern california crowd that continues to follow it every step of the way, to its final home. >> oh. >> reporter: the place known for high-speed chases now has a slow-speed attraction gaining lots of attraction from thousands of fans. >> i'm seeing history in the making. >> we have booster ignition and liftoff. >> reporter: the space shuttle "endeavour" has traveled 123 million miles at speeds of more than 17,000 miles per hour.
7:15 am
now, it's cruising, or should i say crawling through los angeles, at just two. >> it is perfect. it's rough and beat up. you can tell it's been somewhere. many times. >> reporter: "endeavour" is ready to go where no shuttle has gone before, its new home at the california science center. but getting home is no ease feat. "endeavour" has already piggybacked three flights from kennedy space center to l.a. now, it's passing through winding roads and sharp turns. with a 78-foot wingspan, hundreds of trees had to be cut so it could clear the roads. power lines were raised to make room for its tail. >> there's going to be congestion on the streets. plan ahead. >> reporter: it's a 12-mile trip taking 2 days. and a commute that, frankly, many in los angeles understand. there's no question, this trip is a massive pass. this morning they had to put the shuttle on dollies and pull it with a pickup truck.
7:16 am
and it comes with a hefty price tag. an estimated $10 million. a first-class endeavor, that will help the shuttle fit in as the newest star in tinseltown. and another interesting note, guys. crews had to lay down roughly 2,000 sheets of steel on sensitive areas of the road, to deal with the shuttle's crushing weight. "endeavour" is expected to wrap up its final leg home later today. dan and bianna? >> people wanted to text and drive behind it. but they can't. what an amazing sight for those drivers in los angeles. now, it's time for the weather and back over to ginger. hey, ginger. >> good morning, guys. and the second headline this morning is the cold in the northeast and new england. that's exactly where i want to begin because i've got snow pictures from franconia, new hampshire, it's happening. it's snowing. it did yesterday, at least. you'll see some beautiful photos there. it falls on the trees, that just changed color and gone to peak. quickly, we go into what looks like winter. by the way, mt. washington,
7:17 am
bianna, we're thinking of climbing it, was 9 degrees this morning. 18 below for the windchill. that's right. some of the other numbers you're seeing. 18 saranac lake, new york. buffalo's at 31 this morning. and you look at the freeze warnings and frost advisories in place for the next couple of hours. and you know it's going to be a chilly morning. we'll rebound quickly. if you don't have the rain like we do in chicago, at 66. louisville will be 77. d.c. will get around to 61. and buffalo, a high today of about 55. not quite as cool. and we have to talk about the colorado snow. this is a little more normal. we've already seen it weeks ago. a few more inches on top, making it a half-foot, at best in some places. i'll leave you with a look at the big picture.
7:18 am
>> i'll want severe weather photos for later. so, if you see any and you're safe, please, take them. tweet them to me. got this one yesterday from new mexico. that was from the los alamos storm. that was earlier in the afternoon. i have to thank kbii, our great abc affiliate in lubbock, texas, for storm chasing. i'll be heading there throughout the weekend. and i had to leave you with pleasant sunshine, from daytona beach and gary. >> why don't we go there instead of climb mt. washington? i haven't committed to that yet. >> 18 below. >> crazy. >> you're already trying to chicken out. >> ginger, thank you. speaking of crazy, we're going to turn to one of the craziest robbery stories we've heard in a while. a bride-to-be has added her own twist to a famous wedding adage. her version, something old, something new, something stolen, something blue.
7:19 am
police say the woman staged a brazen robbery at a bridal boutique. there's a moment you know. >> it does put me in a better mood. >> reporter: it's the wedding gown for you. >> breathtaking. >> reporter: but when this new jersey woman said yes to her $5,000 dress last month, she supposedly said no to paying for it. seen here in new surveillance footage, the woman clutches the dress as she walks briskly out of the bridal boutique and through the parking lot. her 3-year-old daughter struggling to keep up. >> this is beyond bridezilla. this is thievery of the worst type, with a child involved. i mean -- >> reporter: owners of seng couture, said the woman came in with her daughter and eight alleged bridal party partners in crime. >> they say they're going to fit for the wedding dress. they come in. and they all go in the stall. >> reporter: after trying on several gowns, police say, the unidentified woman walked out
7:20 am
with the most expensive ensemble, while the rest of her group blocked the owner's view. >> lock the door. >> reporter: so, why did no one chase after the runaway bride? >> she's very trusting. she doesn't stand over you. it she gives you room to try on. so, maybe it was to her detriment. >> reporter: it's not known if the woman is planning to wed in the gown. but just like a tossed bouquet, everyone is trying to catch her. so, along with that dress, she may get her own ball and chain, too. i'm sure people at the store were just in shock. to think that someone would run out with a dress like that. >> i like what she said. beyond bridezilla. >> way beyond bridezilla. now, to the story of a rescued dog and an extremely grateful family. the brousseaus of connecticut adopted a dog named duke six years ago. and he's now paid them back in dramatic fashion. check it out. duke is an ordinary-looking dog that did something
7:21 am
extraordinary. last sunday night, duke jumped on his owner's bed, and started shaking so uncontrollably, he woke them up. >> he is insanely obedient. so, this was extremely bizarre. >> reporter: so bizarre, that janet brousseau knew something was wrong. this prompted her and her husband to check on their 9-week-old infant daughter, harper. sure enough, something was wrong. harper wasn't breathing. >> my husband called 911. and the ambulance came here. and it was because of our dukey dog, who alerted us. >> reporter: duke's call for help saved the little girl. harper is now doing just fine. >> if duke hadn't, you know, been so scared, we would have just gone to sleep. >> reporter: the brousseaus adopted this scrappy, little dog from an animal shelter six years ago. a debt of gratitude that's now been repaid many times over. >> he was meant to be ours. i tell him all the time, you
7:22 am
were born in mommy's heart. just because he was so meant to be ours. he's a good boy. >> he is a good boy. so cute. so cute. and the brousseaus say they hope this story will encourage more people to adopt pets. i'm a big evangelist for that. there's three people i know, i'm not going to mention their names. but their initials are ron claiborne, bianna golodryga and ginger zee, who have not adopted any pets. >> i'm dealing with a 6-month-old. but you know what? could be the best investment to make. coming up here on "good morning america," shots fired. police search for a gunman who opened fire at a campaign office for president obama. also, a small town on edge in the wake of a prostitution scandal. the reported list of high-profile clients may be public. and our reporter tracked down the woman at the center of the case. >> i will call the police on you. >> i understand. >> you are trespassing. >> i just want to get -- >> she was not happy to see our john schriffen. also coming up this morning,

7:33 am
community? >> i think the teenagers are a lot more aware of it. some of them feel passionately that the names should not come forward. some of them are worried about the affects on the town. my own daughter is in high school and has had people really angrily say to her, it's not right that the papers are going to print this. it's not right what your mom is going to do. >> reporter: but laura dolce says it's her duty as a journalist. and with her skyrocketing readership, the public is demanding it. john schriffen, abc news, kennebunk, maine. >> such an unlikely place. let's check the other headlines with our chief belieber, ron claiborne. big bieber fan. >> good morning, everyone. in the news, police in denver, colorado, are investigating after someone fired a shot into president obama's campaign office there. the bullet shattered a window but no one was injured. the man arrested at l.a. international airport wearing a bulletproof vest and carrying weapons in his bags is being held without bond until his trial. the judge determined him to be a
